Collaborate: Ultra-Reconfigurable VO2-Based Reflectarrays

By September 19, 2023No Comments

FirstIgnite is supporting the commercialization of Florida International University’s ultra-reconfigurable VO2-based reflectarrays technology, which is a platform that increases efficiency in signal transmission using the unique properties of vanadium dioxide. This innovative approach utilizes a heating element for targeted reconfiguration, ultimately enhancing signal transmission efficiency.

This technology has various applications, ranging from establishing intelligent radio frequency (RF) environments in commercial spaces to new 5G WiFi and cellular data standards. Additionally, it is able to provide precise, real-time signal guidance within hallways, offices, neighborhoods, and city blocks. The global small cell 5G network market size is predicted to increase from $4.08 billion in 2023 to $52.73 billion by 2030.

Florida International University’s ultra-reconfigurable VO2-based reflectarrays technology is ready for collaboration (licensing, partnerships, industry feedback, etc.).
